## Abstract

For an $n \times n$ tridiagonal matrix we exploit the structure of its QR factorization to devise two new algorithms for computing the 1-norm condition number in $O(n)$ operations. The algorithms avoid underflow and overflow, and are simpler than existing algorithms since tests are not required for degenerate cases. An error analysis of the first algorithm is given, while the second algorithm is shown to be competitive in speed with existing algorithms. We then turn our attention to an $n \times n$ diagonal-plus-semiseparable matrix, $A$, for which several algorithms have recently been developed to solve $Ax=b$ in $O(n)$ operations. We again exploit the QR factorization of the matrix to present an algorithm that computes the 1-norm condition number in $O(n)$ operations.
